Autumn Edition 2019 that you will not wish that you had spent more time at the office or had earned more money. So I encourage you all this autumn season LIVE well, LAUGH often and LOVE much ...

T

hank you for taking the time to read this publication. This little gem of a magazine on our coastline is undoubtedly the very much loved “Heart Beat” of the South Coast region, and it is the warmth and sincerity of the proudly growing advertising business community that allows me to bring you a product that is a great and wonderful informative guide to our KZN coastline.

May each leaf play a note in the symphony of Autumn in this new season for you, and may you too become that shining beacon of light somewhere … for someone .. that might be just reaching out.

As we embark on leaving this Summer season let me empower you with some wise words of wisdom. One day ... it will be your last day, and I assure you that on this day the only thing that will matter is the people you love, the relationships that you have formed and the contributions that you have made into this world. I guarantee you ...

Keep your finger on the Pulse .. the Heart Beat of the South Coast. In Love, Light & Gratitude Sandy

A Truly South African Poem You're my beaded love letter, my breeze in the night, you're my coffee, my Cremora, my Blitz firelight. You're my crime-stop, my tracker, you're my ADT, my pap, Mrs Ball's Chutney, my Nando's for free; You're my lambchop, my dewdrop, my partner in crime, my chillie, my pepper, my vetkoek sublime. The list is just endless, and this isn't all: You're my Lotto jackpot, my dop and my zol. You're my 4 x 4 when the road is hilly, you're the flora magazine that butters my mielie. I smaak you, my poppie, so please be my wife …. cause babe you're the All Gold on the slap chips of life !!!

Home Safety Tips this Summer Season Ÿ Ÿ Ÿ

Ÿ Ÿ Ÿ Ÿ Ÿ

Make sure you always lock up behind you. Fit Beams around your house and install a home security system. Close windows and curtains. It is easier to see in than out, even with a small bathroom window the perpetrators will "fish" your belongings out through the open windows. Don't leave valuables lying in open view. Listen to your dogs. If you hear noises outside, call your security company. Don't go outside to investigate. Keep outside lights on at night. Lock your vehicle in your yard and keep your gate closed. Automatic Gates need a lock on the motor and battery to prevent theft.

Sports Feature Kim Strauss

K

im Strauss is a real achiever in the sporting arena. She has played Provincial Hockey and acquired her “level 4” International Umpiring qualification.

Kim was a member of the Port Shepstone High school cricket team and surfed for KZN during her school career. As an enthusiastic and avid sports person, Kim was invited to walk around the golf course by a friend. Needless to say after hitting a few balls she was hooked. She has played sport throughout her life and has been coached and mentored by many people along the way. Kim is a proud member of the Port Shepstone Country Club and, through the ladies golf section has been entered into many competitions, golf days and league events. In 2016 Kim won the Club Champs for the first time and later that year the South Coast Region Champs. In October 2016 she teamed up with Lizzie Currie for the annual Inter Club Tournament and managed to come out “tops” there too. Since then, Kim has been selected for the KZN Ladies golf squad and participated in many tournaments in and around the province. She also takes part in all the major KZN fixtures and proudly represents the Port Shepstone Country Club and the ladies section in most competitions. “The camaraderie and friendship built on the golf course is truly priceless and I hav e many people to thank for helping me achieve the accolades I have received during my golfing career” says Kim Strauss. Kim currently holds the unofficial course record for the ladies at the Port Shepstone Country club (a magical 67 gross). Kim quoted: “A day I will never forget and something I will strive to achieve again in the future. Golf is a wonderful sport for all ages and can be played at any level. I am eager to learn and develop my golfing skills. I would like to expand my knowledge of the game, on and off the field and ultimately share that with others. I would also like to help introduce people to the game and keep those currently playing motivated”.

Fun Facts for Kids - CRABS Ÿ Ÿ Ÿ Ÿ Ÿ Ÿ Ÿ Ÿ

Crabs have 10 legs and are called decapods. The front 2 legs of the crab are called claws and are not used for locomotion. Crabs have their eyes on the stalks, which enables them to see around even when they are under water or a rock. Crabs eyes are made of hundreds of little lenses. A crab's abdomen is under its main shell, unlike a lobster which has its abdomen on the back... Some crabs can lay and carry up to a million eggs at a time. Crabs work together to gather food and protect their families. Crabs are omnivores and eat both plant and animal matter.

Fishing Report Darrell Hattingh

S

ummer fishing has been in full swing with good catches of Yellowfin Tuna taken by ski boaters offshore. Many are reporting full quotas on the good days. Dorado have been about on the edge of the discoloured water line too providing ski boaters and a few early morning paddle ski fishermen with some splendid eating fish. The tuna should hopefully still be around until March as well as a few shoals of Couta and bottom fish for those wanting to go on a Charter. The shad season has been open since December 1st and some sporadic good catches have been made by rock and surf anglers at various spots along the South Coast. Please remember the bag limit is a max of 4 per fisherman per day at a minimum of 30 cm length. The shad season continues through autumn and winter. During March, April and May, one can expect the usual rock fish like bronze bream and kob. In the deeper water you will find some Natal snoek which are around at this time of year as well. For the flat fish enthusiasts there are sandsharks, rays and skates. Despite looking very similar to a shark, they are excellent angling game fish, surprisingly good eating and often associate themselves following the Rays off the rocky points and sandbanks. For divers the crayfish season opens on March 1st so please remember that the max bag limit is 8, with a minimum size carapace length of 65 mm and none in berry (eggs). A valid seasonal licence is required which can be purchased from your local post office. Wishing you tight lines, safe diving and settled fishing seas.

Surfing Report Heather Clark Hi everyone, I hope you all have been enjoying the lovely hot summer days and early mornings at the beach over summer. With Autumn creeping in, those early morning sessions before work are going to become shorter and shorter as the sun starts coming up later. We should be in for some more chilled out calmer days and lighter winds which is always good for our surf conditions. Not like the 40-50kmph winds we experienced in summer, that was crazy!! The rain has caused a bit of havoc with the ocean as the river banks break open and the river flows into the ocean turning it brown for days at a time and there is often a lot of debris that comes down with it. We won’t complain though as we are always grateful for every drop of rain we get. The brown water doesn’t stop the surfers ... when the surf is cooking there is nothing that will hold us back .. we learn to appreciate those chocolate barrels!! The Ugu surfers are all training hard for trials where the top surfers will be selected to part take in SA’s. So if you’re keen to put your surfing skills to the test, check out the UGU surfriderspage on Facebook and get in touch! If you’re a beginner and want to learn to surf you can check out my Facebook page Heather Clark Surf Adventures for more details. I also offer advanced surf coaching. Have a happy Autumn with fun waves and please remember to keep our ocean and beaches clean. Yours in surfing Heather Clark

Beach Safety Tips Ÿ Ÿ Ÿ Ÿ Ÿ Ÿ

Swim between the red & yellow ags as the Lifeguards are on duty here at selected beaches. Don’t drink alcohol and swim. Never swim alone. Always swim with a buddy. Adult supervision for children on the beach is necessary at all times. Keep all valuables at home. Do not walk alone on isolated beaches. Ÿ Steer clear of animal life like jelly sh and stingrays. Ÿ Wash blue bottle or jelly sh stings with sea water and not fresh water. Ÿ Do not swim in river mouths, in dirty weather or after heavy rains as shark activity increases in these conditions.

Whatever you'd like to contribute. WE WOULD LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU. scanning through the pages we embarked on a little adventure. After a variety of shooters at Razzles Pub & Restaurant in Umtentweni we arrived at the 19th Hole at the Port Shepstone Country Club and oh wow .. we felt so welcome there. Lots of golfers to chat with .. great food served and the staff very friendly. We ended the evening at Jaxx Restaurant after a few more beverages and some pizza (the best pizza we have ever tasted !!) and then we got our wives to come and collect us. It was our first time on the KZN South Coast and oh yes we will be back !! Heavy Jollers - Gauteng

PARKING ISSUES Dear Editor, Have you ever walked 800 metres uphill with 2 cooler bags, a beach brolly, a bundle of wet towels, a pram with a screaming one year old and two toddlers in tow, to reach your car coming from the beach? Try find parking in holiday season that is near to any beach on the South Coast? No bus services or public transport either here? Why? Mommy Shark, Witbank

TIPPING WAITRESSES OR WAITERS

PUB CRAWLING

Dear Editor, I would like to hear from your readers what is the norm now to tip waiters and waitresses? Is the 10 % gratuity still acceptable these days or is this too mingy? Also what if you are only ordering coffee or drinks and no food. Do you still tip? Confused Tipper - Phalaborwa

Dear Editor, Weekend ... what to do? Three of us decided to go on a pub crawl. Where to start? We found the Pulse KZN Magazine at Orca's Restaurant in Sunwich Port and after
